Re: RPGs for people who aren't fans of the genre?

High school student drama where you kill yourself to be possessed by demons vs. action movie with super heroes The audience for Marvel films don't have body pillows of Black Widow, or She-Hulk, or whatever. I'm not sure if we're talking about the same game series. You seem very serious about this t...

Re: Persona 5

Yeah, this game is pretty good. Actually, it's extremely amazing and maybe the best JRPG I've ever played. From Persona 3, to 4, and now 5 Atlus has taken an already great game and blueprint and then improved it to make it even better. From hanging out with friends, completing requests in the proced...

Re: Switch Impressions

Now that the Switch is out, there are some complaints. What do you think on these? (And lets keep in mind none of these are even in RROD ballpark) No web browser when the WiiU and 3DS have them Overheating No Netflix or other high interest apps About a 3 hour battery life Save data locked to the ha...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

What does BotW do that The Witcher, Skyrim, Dragons Dogma, Kingdoms of Amalur, and others don't? I was listening to a podcast and the guy brought up a perfect point to describe how this game differs. The game doesn't pressure you to do anything. In basically every other open world game, there's alw...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

This is an all timer for sure. The two things that really open the game up is the ability to climb anything, and gliding through the air. I've spent so much time just wandering around, finding shrines, fairies, gathering things, and unlocking the map because the game makes it easy. See something in ...

Re: Switch Impressions

I was apprehensive about picking the game up for Wii U because I was nervous that they (Nintendo) would release a janky, bug riddled port. Thankfully, it turned out great! It runs very smoothly, for the most part, and it looks terrific! Had this game been a Switch exclusive, it would have been the ...

Switch Impressions

I picked mine up last night with Zelda, Bomberman, and a pro controller. Hardware generally feels and looks really nice. The screen is much better than the Wii U's gamepad, with better colors, capacitive touch, and a 720p resolution. The kickstand is pretty flimsy however, and I imagine lots of peop...

Re: Xbox One Game Pass - Netflix style gaming

Now I'm confused. I have been reading "can download" on every site and, given their odd comparison to Netflix, have assumed that meant "if you'd rather do that than stream." So it's EA Access then. A comparable subscription service only available on Xbox, that Microsoft themselv...

Re: Xbox One Game Pass - Netflix style gaming

Microsoft's service differs from PS Now by quite a bit I think. For one, the games aren't streamed. PS Now's inherent lag make certain games a pain in the ass to play. And two, Microsoft is offering current and 360 games, whereas PS Now only offers PS3 games. If anything, PS Now works similarly to N...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

Sadly, with as many complaints as there are in this thread, they're still all valid and great points. It feels like Nintendo's downfall with the Switch, initially at least, is going to be death by a thousand cuts. Launch lineup is a little sparse. Unclear plan for their paid online. No virtual conso...
